I'm not going to be able to ramp up as ambitiously as I wanted to or I would join in on this. I probably will have to hold off on any more "D" until the first of the year.

I'm in, when do we start?
This will be quite a challenge since I have sold all of my dedicated folding hardware, I will have to dig deep for some PPD.

Ax you not going to join in on the fun?

I'll stay on the sidelines and referee for you guys, or be the cheerleading squad. I'd really like to see some of the younger guys win this one without my getting in the way. I will pony up an Antec 430 Power Supply for the winner though, if they're interested. Let me know if that's an acceptable offering...;)

Ax

Hmm. Just finished a range fire and have another one this weekend, so my production will have to be unmanned, but well see what I can get up. So, I'm not in until I can get atleast 1rig online. I'll let y'all know

You know what would be more interesting, a race to 100,000 over what your current PPD is. So say you currently do 10,000 PPD, every point above 10,000 each day would go towards that 100,000 you are racing to. No negative values though. Would be harder to track but would make for an equal footing for anyone and would encourage adding new folding capacity over current capacity.

Yea but that would impossible to track because everyday your PPD would change and eventually you would not be able to add more and the race would come to a standstill.
That and it would take forever.

You wouldn't keep upping it, you would take a baseline at the start of the race and use that for the entirety of the race. As for the time, that is why I said put it down to 100k, that wouldn't take too long, add another GTX260 and you will be there in 2-3 weeks.

Add my name to the list.

Ps. I must look at getting my dead boxen back online.
And this makes a good reason for doing it.

Luck ......... :D

I'm in on this one. I don't have much room to ramp up though, the total PPD my setup is currently capable of is about 16k but since these aren't dedicated boxen but everyday machines I often pause f@h for gaming and such. All the same it sounds like fun!

I'll jump in to the mix. I just finished moving and my internet at the new place is going in tomorrow. I'm generally good for about 16k ppd + or - depending on if my brother's 8800GT is running.

I'm going to throw in a 8600GTS w/ Zalman 900 cooler as a prize. Pic to come.
This prize is not for first place. I will announce what place after it begins and we have all the names in.

So nitro I will need you to keep up with entries names! Your the man!

To hell with it, I'm in. My little brother keeps killing vnc server and I can't check my mom's 9600gso, which is borked again :( This gives me reason to get my ass in gear and get that card back online!

Alright we have a good list going so far.

We will be taking entries until start time.....so if you get your rig up and decide you want in you know what to do.

Also although this is a race, we have participants from all over the PPD map.
Im going to figure out a prize to throw in
Gkanakis has one
and whoever else can donate too.

Depending on how many/what prizes we have we will select a random number and that place will win the prize!

btw.. might be a good idea to have everyones signature tags posted in the first post of the thread once it starts.. put the starting number next to the persons signature tag so that we can see who's winning the race.. instead of having to search the thread for peoples signature tags to see where they are..


btw you guys should make tiger get 2 million while everyone else has to get a million points.. just to make it fair.. :p lol

Send me a list of the contestants and a start time and I will create a doc with all of the badge links so we can post them simultaneously. Hopefully we won't anger the forum titans with 20 badges in one post.

Ok I guess I need to jump into this thing as well, Folders just behind me and in front are in which means I may get mowed if I sit idle. Not sure what PPD I can add now but I will see what I can do.
